Fall 2019 Marijuana Grow Log Week 3

Transplanting Marijuana Plant Seedlings

My second attempt at legally growing marijuana indoors for personal use in Michigan is well under way.

As I outlined in prior posts, I tried various ways to germinate Northern Light XL, feminized seeds to find out the best way to germinate marijuana seeds. Through that, I currently have 5 plants growing.

In the past couple of weeks the seedlings seem to be doing pretty well in solo cups. Growing to the point that it is time to transplant into a larger container.

Over the last 4 weeks I have been testing out different ways to find the best way to germinate marijuana seeds, and I have one Northern Lights plant that is about 3 weeks along. Healthy looking plant so far.

I decided to take the plunge and try to train this marijuana plant.
